A YOUNG mum has accused a 56-year-old man of sexually abusing her when she was just seven.
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, alleges that Christopher Osborne, of Leymoor Road in Golcar, raped her eight times while she was a child.
She also says he indecently assaulted her twice, and behaved indecently towards her.
Osborne denies all the charges.
Yesterday Bradford Crown Court heard the woman claim as she grew up, Osborne used to take her to pubs far away from her house where neither of them knew anyone and he would tell drinkers there that she was his girlfriend.
She said she "had no choice" but to go with him. She also claims he offered her £50 to perform a sex act on him.
But Gillian Batts, defending Osborne, questioned the woman’s story. Miss Batts said there were inconsistencies in her story.
The case continues.
